Overview

The world's first Partition Museum is now open at the historic Town Hall building in Amritsar. The Partition of India was one of the most defining events in the nation's history. It was perhaps the largest migration in human history, with some 18 million affected. The Museum is part of the newly inaugurated Heritage Street at Amritsar, which starts at the Golden Temple and ends at the Town Hall.

This fairly new museum provides a very clear story of Indian partition, including comments from those directly involved on both the Moslem and Hindu sides. Strongly recommended if you have an hour or two to spare in central Amritsar.

As a longstay visitor to India it is important that I learn about the relationship between India and it's neighbours. This was a really important part of my learning and it filled in a lot of holes in my knowledge. I'd highly recommend it.

Partition of the sub-continent was really a horrific affair but people living in India away from north really do not understand this tragedy so well. This place just gives you a chance to do that through people's memories. In my view it is an absolute...More

We visited the Partition Museum on a whim while in Amritsar and were pleasantly surprised. The attention to detail and the manner in which the museum is curated makes it a must visit when in Amritsar.
